Eight Weeks Old

Aren't they seriously adorable? I don't feel so bad putting them in matching/coordinating clothes because they are boy/girl twins. There's a big debate in the moms of multiples world about whether or not you should put twins in matching clothes, but I know that they are going to feel special and soo like individuals, that I'm not that concerned about that. We rarely, rarely refer to them as the twins (although occasionally we will); more often than not we refer to them as Aiden and Isabella or The Babies. =)

We had a doctor's appointment today and Aiden weighed 8 lbs 1.3 oz and Isabella was 7 lbs 5.7 oz. We weren't too surprised that Aiden was so much bigger because we've felt it in our arms. Aiden is pretty anemic and has to get blood draws every month or so. He's also on drops and a high iron formula (plus breastmilk). It's not a big deal in the big scheme of things, but it is probably something he'll battle his whole life (it's something I have to be super conscious of too). A few have asked us about Aiden's kidneys. We have an appointment September 25th and we'll know more. Right now all we know is that Aiden has multicystic dysplastic kidney disease and that he may have to have one kidney removed.
